Emi Giese is an RN at SJCH and loves showing off her Fitbit! Emi has had her Fitbit for a short time but already loves it. She's even purchased a Fitbit for her husband. An added bonus for Emi is that she can link her Fitbit with her LivingWell health plan to earn points!

We had a wonderful event today celebrating Dr. Don Cornforth's hard work, dedication and leadership to SJCH and all of the patients he has helped along the way. Dr. Cornforth and his wife Edna are wonderful partners at our hospital and foundation. A great tribute to truly a kindhearted man!

My 8 year old fell while on a field trip and broke her wrist so I to her to the SJCH ER and that was the worst six hours of our lives. First off we were treated like we didn't belong there. The staff were the rudest people I have ever met. so after a 3 hr wait we are taking in to a cubical where we stay for about a hour just to have a nurse come in and do my daughters vitals. all the while she is crying in pain. No kind of sympathy was show to her. the we were sent back to the waiting room and called to the desk so that I could pay my bill (still have not see the doctor yet) so after a while we are called back to the same cubical where the doctor took a look at her wrist and said its not broken but we will take X-rays just in case. so after X-rays we waited for ever and then FINALLY the Doctor come out and says yes she does have a broken wrist and walked right out of the room not letting us know what was to be done next. my daughter did get her soft cast on and then we literately fast walked straight out of there. WORST PLACE EVER!!! IF AT ALL POSSIBLE STAY AWAY!

Night crew was extremely helpful and nice when the morning shift came in it was like dr jekyll and Mr hide. It was my wife that went in for a miscarriage they were rude and didn't seem to care at all. They even argued abou the medicine the night shift prescribed. They told her just to go home with nothing. She had to yell until they found it. If i were there they would have had their asses handed to them.

Worst experience ever . Wife was in labor went in people were rude. " we're busy, go wait in the lobby". That was the start my wife could hardly walk and I asked for a wheel chair and the nurse laughed at us and said the lobbys just down the hall. After a 2 1/2 hour wait in a lobby of sick people we actually got in a room with 3 other people very loud very dirty . The restroom was dirty trash paper everywhere no soap the shower has dirty old equipment in it. The people next to us needed a n extra blanket and after waiting forever for someone he grabbed one out of a cabinet and what do you know a rude nurse popped in and said hey you need to ask. We all go to the hospital for help and this is what we get . If I told drivers hey we're too busy I'd so you're service is going to be poor I'd be out of a job . Sjvh claims to care but everyone's rude except cafeteria people

If I could I would give 0 starts. My son was here 2 days ago. We thought he had food poisoning according to his doctor is his appendix. Because they couldn't find anything we were send home. Today we have being waiting for 3 hours. He was supposed to have an IV and a CT scan, nothing so far and that is with Doctors orders that wr handle to them when we walked in. People working in ER couldn't be more rude.

I went to the ER last Friday. I was in extreme pain. I have lupus and RA. Since arriving in Bakersfield I contracted Valley Fever. I was shuffled around for six hours and then let go. A doctor DID NOT examine me.. I am on home health and thought I would get better care at an Adventist Hospital (since they are doing my home health), boy was I wrong.

Absolutely stunned at the lack of service. I was looking for a walk in clinic open on a Saturday and had no luck so I called this Hospital. I was told by the operator about their "Fast Track Department" in the ER and I was transferred to them. When asked about it, the first person had no idea what that was but asked the person next to them and they confirmed that they are the "Fast Track Department" of the ER. I then asked what it was that they did for the ER. She sounded confused and stated she was in the ER. I get that, so I ask again what the Fast Track portion of that was supposed to mean. Ultimately I was trying to see if they had a less urgent walk in clinic as my mother may have bronchitis and it's a simple visit. She transferred me to a woman that simply explained triage. How this was a difficult question is beyond me. If Fast Track only means that it's a program or that their intention is to get the most urgent cases through first... SAY THAT! At the very least if you're going to give something a name, tell your staff what it is so that they can succinctly explain it themselves. You would have thought I asked them to solve a question about quantum physics! I never raised my voice or said anything derogatory, I simply asked what something meant and if they could see my mother quickly as it's not a complicated issue that she is having. Yet they felt the need to hang up on me. I've worked in hospitals... even if somehow I was being difficult I still would not have handled this the way that they did. If you don't know, ask someone else... or say you don't know. Don't hang up!

Disgusted with San Joaquin Hospital! I was there with my daughter and seen the most insensitive treatment I have ever seen. First off, the reason I was there was my 10 month old was very lethargic and just extremely drowsy, I had to ask them to please just check her vital signs. they still made me wait. Then I seen a nurse, a worker from the hostpital go straight to a patient and take off his neck brace without saying a word! The guy turns around confused and the worker tells him your fine there's nothing wrong with you! Then about 5 hours later Im in a room waiting for about 2 hours in that room for my daughters blood work results and xray results. I hear a girl banging on the door screaming for help! Finally about 10 -15 minutes later a worker goes to the bathroom door and asks if shes ok...... the girl tells her " I don't know something came out of me its in the toilet!" The worker then tells her are you pregnant and the girl answers "Yes four months." the worker then tells her let me get someone for you. She leaves and no one ever comes. The same worker finally comes back, and tell the girl to have a seat. The girl asks what about whats in the toilet..... the worker says oh we'll take care of it. The girls goes and sits down. Then I hear to workers jokingly discuss who will take out what's in the toilet!!!!! Are you kidding me! I overhear one say EEEWWWW! I can't believe what I am witnessing. I am very saddened to have been a witness to this. This is the hospital I have to go to through my insurance but I am going to do whatever I can to go to another hospital if I ever need to hospital care. So sad
